Nigerian President, Muhammad Buhari has given marching order to the Armed Forces of Nigeria to root out all forms of insurgency and insecurity not just in Borno but everywhere across Nigeria.

The marching order came after the unfortunate incident of killing of farmers by the Boko Haram Terrorists in Borno State recently, the President said he has ordered the armed force to take the fight to the insurgents, not on a one-off, but on a continuous basis.

According to him, “Nothing is more important than ensuring the security of lives and property of Nigerians. Everything is secondary when security is at stake. I will ensure that more resources are made available to the military and other security agencies to prosecute the war against terrorism.

“As we mourn all the lives lost in Zabarmari, the Armed Forces have been given the marching order to take the fight to the insurgents, not on a one-off, but on a continuous basis, until we root out the terrorists”, he said.

He added that his administration will intensify its cooperation with neighbouring countries on bilateral and multilateral levels, to ensure that there is no hiding place for the terrorists.

“As I noted earlier, the massacre by Boko Haram in Zabarmari is nothing short of senseless, barbaric, gruesome and cowardly. It reinforces our resolve to root out all forms of insurgency and insecurity not just in Borno but everywhere across Nigeria”, he said.
